If you have a change in your family, health or wealth situation, go back to the attorney who drew up your documents, and have him or her make the needed revisions. If you change your estate-planning goals, make sure all your documents reflect your current wishes. You, your trustee and your attorney are the only ones who will be privy to that information. It’s often best to keep details like this confidential because someone who is receiving less of an inheritance than someone else might get upset, not knowing the whole story. It might cause contention.
